An attachment that makes it easier to inhale medication from a metered dose inhaler.
A spacer is a tube-like device that is placed between the MDI (inhaler) and your mouth. It allows the inhaled medicated mist to slow down after you activate the MDI so that it can be inhaled more efficiently even if the patient coordination in using the MDI is not perfect.
noun Plastic or aluminum hub that separates bearing casings
A block clamped or otherwise attached to the table saw rip fence to enable the safe crosscutting of several pieces of stock to an identical length. The use of such a block is necessary to keep the workpiece from being thrown by becoming wedged between the fence and blade.
A chamber used in conjunction with an MDI inhalation device that makes use of the MDI more effective and easier.
a tube-like device (also called a holding chamber) used with a metered dose inhaler. The spacer makes it easier to coordinate pressing on the inhaler and breathing in the medicine.
A short, tube-like device often used with a metered-dose inhaler (MDI) to help deliver medication to the airways. Spacers make it easier to coordinate the MDI while inhaling the medication.

A chamber that is used with a metered dose inhaler to help the medicine get into the airways better — Spacers also make metered dose inhalers easier to use. Spacers are sometimes called "holding chambers."
A plastic dome with a mouthpiece at one end and a fitting for an inhaler at the other end. Useful if an inhaler is difficult to use.
A device used along with a metered-dose inhaler (MDI) that helps people use MDIs better. Spacers are essential for all young children who use MDIs, and is helpful in many older children and adults also. Spacers help by increasing the amount of inhaled medicine that reaches the lung, and cuts down on side effects in the mouth and throat. There are many different types of spacers, but the most common involve attaching MDIs to tubes or bags before inhaling.
A short tube device which can be attached to an inhaler to help the person with asthma use the inhaler more effectively. A spacer does not have a valve and is not as effective as a holding chamber.
This works with your MDI to deliver medication more easily and effectively, and can reduce side effects. When you use an MDI by itself, more of the medicine is left in your mouth and throat, wasting your dose and causing an unpleasant aftertaste. Spacers hold the "puff" of medicine between you and the MDI, so that you can inhale it slowly and more completely. As a result, more of the medicine gets into your airways. A comfortable mask can be added to the spacer for small children or others who have difficulty maintaining a good lip seal on the mouthpiece. Spacers are also called holding chambers.
A device usually consisting of a plastic chamber that attaches to an MDI on one end, with a mouthpiece on the other end. A spacer is intended to help medicine from an MDI get into the lungs. Without a spacer, much of the medicine in an inhaler "puff" gets deposited on the tongue or in the back of the throat.
a device to help use an MDI effectively.
A chamber placed between metered dose inhalers (see definition, above) of inhaled medication and the patient's mouth. Useful for children with asthma who cannot coordinate timing of their inhalation with the spray of the medication. As droplets of medication slow down and evaporate, spacers also allow for less direct impact of the medication on the lining of the mouth, minimizing some side effects. ( 4-19)
device designed to hold an aerosol metered-dose inhaler (MDI) for optimum delivery of the drug into the lungs.
Anything that takes up space. On a slot car, it could be used on the axle, or on the motor, it could be used on the armature shaft. Made from aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, steel, plastic and phenolic.
A device that attaches to a metered-dose inhaler and makes it easier to breathe in your full dose of medicine.
1. Cross shaped, small plastic pieces, which are used to space tiles during the installation of ceramic tile, so that they are evenly placed. 2. Small concrete blocks that support and maintain rebar at a specified height off of the bottom of a concrete pour.
A hollow chamber into which inhaled medicines can be squirted before inhalation. They are used with metered-dose inhalers to help deliver medicine effectively to the bronchial tubes and to reduce the amount of medicine left behind on the tongue and throat (see Asthma).
A small device that attaches to a metered dose inhaler medication in order to help improve the delivery of drugs to the lungs and reduce unwanted side effects such as the unpleasant taste of some drugs
